Define a data source for each Teradata Database (target system and test system) prior to connecting with ODBC. Use the Microsoft ODBC Data Source Administrator to create ODBC data sources and to configure the drivers.

To define a data source

  • From the Teradata System Emulation Tool window (main window), click Tools > Define Data Source.
  • From the Windows desktop, click Start > All Programs > ODBC > 32‑bit ODBC Administrator.
  • The ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog box appears and displays the User DSN tab by default.

    2 Click Add.

    3 Under the Name column, select Teradata.

    4 Click Finish.

    The ODBC Driver Setup for Teradata Database dialog box appears.

    5 Enter information in the boxes.

    Refer to ODBC Driver for Teradata User Guide B035-2509 for assistance.

    6 Verify the connection before opening Teradata Set and connecting to a Teradata Database.
